What was most enjoyable about your late 70's, early 80's DEAD experiences? Did you still go for the short rocking tunes played well with high energy solos?

Often, when I listen to shows from this vintage I am often drawn by an unusually long (for the era) Playin' or a second set sandwich or flow of songs, hoping for some new harmonic form to emerge out of the predetermined structure of songs they'd been playing more or less the same way for a long time. I guess this was rare so you did not go hoping for this sort of thing but appreciated it when it happened?

Did you enjoy Althea at all? Thought you might be one to appreciate the latter era brilliance of Garcia/Hunter on this tune.

Althea Rose...the gal poster...we're the same age...I can't say any more, or folks will get upset; I like to think we're friends, that's probably as far as I can go, right?

Hey, I am just glad at the close of the third quarter we are beating the russkies in FIBA, with our "replacement team"...whewww...lets hope it holds up. 38 yrs ago I lived and died with the three time replay of the last 3 seconds; I did become a huge fan of Doug Collins as a result, regardless of what he does to his hair these days, I will forever appreciate the fact that he won that game in the Olympics...

My grandfather was on the Red Army basketball team, starting point guard... they used to go around playing other base's teams and clubs teams, etc. That's how he spent a good deal of his mandatory military service!
